We’re very happy to let you know about our new album today. It’s called Stranger Songs, and it’s coming out on July First via topshelfrecords.
This album has been in the works for a minute - we started writing this stuff at the end of 2012. Some of it was written before the stuff we provided for our split with thesaddestlandscape. We finished writing it at the beginning of 2014. Most everything we did with this record, we did in-house: Tyler recorded and mixed everything at his house, and I did all of the album design & photography (save for a few shots taken by friends, like the above one taken by Reid Haithcock). We tried to make the album as insular as possible, so what you’re getting on this record is just us.
We had Will Killingsworth master the album at Dead Air Studios & Kevin and Seth agreed to put of the record for us. It will be released on LP, CD & digital formats. We’ll be releasing more info soon (album art, pre-order info), but for the time being, you can check out our 7 inch Always Trapped and our 12” split with TSL over at the Topshelf site.
American Football are counting down to something that’s happening in under 20 days. Could the band be announcing some other sort of musical release to follow-up their deluxe reissue? Could the band be playing reunion shows? We’ll know this month. Check out the countdown below after the jump.
